Break-in Period: 0
Price Paid: $180
Bought it after injuring my achilles tendon backpacking on light hiking shoes. Have used it on 2 weeklong trips and in many day trips now. As long as I am wearing a pack, these are the boots on my feet, my tendons are fine, it's very sturdy, comfortable and I didn't have to break them in.
Absolutely love these boots and recommend to anyone traveling with a pack.
